How to create two different dado depths for shelves

Postby Scott Weinmann » Tue, May 19 2015, 8:06AM

I am trying to assign two different dado depths for my fixed shelves due to different material thicknesses of sides and back, I am using 3/4 on the sides and 1/2 on the back. Is there any way to do this?

No, there is no allowance for multiple setting on a single part. Can you not just use a depth that works for both like .25"?

Changing all dados to .25 was what I was thinking as well but just wanted to make sure I am not missing something. Thanks for confirming that.

Would it not automatically set different depths when you select % of material for blind dados?

Tim, that will only effect how thick the dado is not the length.

Ok, but it sounded so good in my head - maybe that could be a fix ?

I believe that is only for blind dados I am doing full Dados.

Forrest,

I think that Tim may actually be suggesting the possibility of a future release of having a percentage setting for the tongue length (aka dado depth) be based on the thickness of the receiving dado's material.

If not - then perhaps I am. :wink:
